These datasets consist of 996 text files. The files contain hourly weather data for 83 Australian locations under 3 future climate scenarios (RCP2.6, RCP4.5, and RCP8.5) and for 4 future years (2030, 2050, 2070, and 2090).
The dataset is available in the following two formats:
In .epw format that can be used by building simulation software such as EnergyPlus, ESP-r, and IESVE.
In a weather file format suitable for building simulations using Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme (NatHERS) software such as AccuRate, BERSPro, FirstRate5, and HERO in non-regulatory mode.
This dataset contains 83 text files in .epw format. The files contain hourly weather data for a typical meteorological year in 83 Australian locations. The typical meteorological year weather dataset is based on historical weather data drawn from the years 1990 to 2015. The dataset is in the EnergyPlus (.epw) format and can be used by building simulation software such as EnergyPlus, ESP-r, and IESVE.
